I am in a contract race with another buyer for a property in Pentyrch. What can I do to speed up matters?
In a situation where the seller is applying time constraints to sign contracts we would recommend that your solicitor is familiar with the location as they will have local contacts and know-how. It is possible that they would have handled otherhouses in the same road. Therefore consider using a Pentyrch conveyancing firm. Second, make sure that the conveyancing firm is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is believed that nearly one in five of Pentyrch conveyancing transactions are delayed or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s solicitor was not on their banks member panel. This can often result in the transaction being frustrated by as much as 21 days. It is estimated that this issue affects in the region of one hundred thousand home moves every year. Most Pentyrch conveyancing practices can not represent certain lenders so do check at the outset.

I am purchasing my first flat in Pentyrch benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
